Mountain Waterworks, Inc. is a Pacific Northwest-based water engineering firm committed to reliable water service, sustainable infrastructure rehabilitation, and long-term utility planning. We provide planning, commissioning, design, construction, and operational optimization services to cities, municipal utility districts, industrial and private water and wastewater systems, and private developments. Our team is proficient in all project phases, from early conceptualization and funding development to equipment training, system start-up, and project closeout.
We are headquartered in Idaho, which is both the fastest growing state in the nation and a state built on water, from vast underground aquifers to bubbling hot springs and towering waterfalls. Here, water is as essential to recreation and adventure as it is for industry and growth. Mountain Waterworks was formed to make water work for our clients, both regionally and nationwide.
Safeguarding public health. Since the early 1970s, the United States has prospered from the ability of public water systems to treat and distribute clean, drinkable water. But these standards and improved living conditions cannot be taken for granted. Mountain Waterworks is diligent in bringing systems into compliance with key rules and regulations, preserving customers’ access to reliable, high-quality drinking water.
Resiliency in water and wastewater infrastructure. Mountain Waterworks ensures utilities operate effectively under all possible conditions. We work with utility managers, public officials, and communities to forecast future growth, identify regulatory requirements, account for potential natural events, and prepare for hazards. Our systems are designed to meet demand 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
Sustaining a strong economy. Investment in water and wastewater utilities has been insufficient for far too long, leading to an ever-mounting funding gap. The American Society of Civil Engineers reports that if capital investment continues to be delayed, by 2020, this funding gap will amount to $126 billion. To sustain strong economies, communities must transition toward a model of utility financing that accounts for the true cost of water and wastewater service. Our engineers and professional staff support utilities as they develop viable financial plans for capital improvements.
Public confidence in water and wastewater utilities. Customers who understand the value of water will invest in water and wastewater infrastructure. As consulting engineers, we have a unique opportunity to educate community members about the benefits proposed projects will bring to their quality of life. We are committed to increasing public transparency about the work, revenue, and capital required to maintain water service at the mandated level.
“Well-maintained public drinking water and wastewater infrastructure is critical for public health, strong businesses, and clean rivers and aquifers. Up to this moment American households and businesses have never had to contemplate how much they are willing to pay for water if it becomes hard to obtain.”
“Especially in the country’s older cities, much of the drinking-water infrastructure is old and in need of replacement. Failures in drinking-water infrastructure can result in water disruptions, impediments to emergency response, and damage to other types of infrastructure.”
